Juventus – shut up already! Shhh, we mean it!

Shhh Fifa has said Italy may be thrown out of the qualifying campaign for Euro 2008 if Juventus continue to fight relegation to Serie B for match-fixing in the courts. Juve were relegated to Serie B and docked 17 points for trying to exert influence over referees; now they're trying to take their appeal to a civil court.

That would be against Fifa's rules and could lead to the Italian Football Federation being suspended.

I now have a mental image of Sepp Blatter, dressed as Dr Evil, telling Juve coach Didier Deschamps to 'Ssssh!'
